Why Did You Fall In Love With Essential Oils?
Do you remember when you first fell in love with essential oils? Perhaps you were suffering from a cold, and Eucalyptus was there to lend a helping hand. Maybe you couldn’t sleep through the night, and Sweet Marjoram helped you drift to dreamland. It’s possible you had a sudden breakout the day before a date, and Tea Tree came to the rescue.
It’s fun to look back and recount these moments, which is why we asked the members of Edens Garden Focus Group (EGFG) how did you fall in love with essential oils, and what’s your favorite oil or blend? We hope you enjoy their stories as much as we did.
Love At First EO
I fell in love with oils while trying to find alternate ways to treat myself and my child. Oils have been interesting to me for a while and I'm so glad I've found quality oils at a reasonable price!
I really love Cedarwood - Atlas. I almost can't even explain how much I enjoy it. Cedarwood is so grounding - I really didn't know how that word felt before I used this oil. My favorite diffuser blend is equal parts Cedarwood, Lavender, and Bergamot.
I’ve been a nurse for over 20 years and never really believed on Alternative Medicine. But for a little over a year now I came across essential oils and that’s when I began researching it. Little did I know, there are so many uses for this type of medicinal uses. I suffer from seasonal allergies and had all kinds of conventional treatments including nasal surgery. It did help however I had to continue taking allergy meds. So when I came across essential oils I made an allergy blend. Immediately I noticed a difference…
My love for essential oils was slow to develop. I thought it was funny that people thought they worked. One day at work, I was suffering from terrible seasonal allergies, and a co-worker said she'd bring me something that would help. The next day she brought me an essential oils concoction. I was polite and thanked her, not thinking it would actually work. By the end of the day, I was so miserable that I was willing to try anything, and gave it a whirl. I felt entirely better within an hour. Since then, I did extensive research about oils, any science to them I could find, and different essential oil companies. Today, my favorite blend is Deep Breath, my favorite single oil is Angelica (I use topically), and my favorite brand is Eden's Garden!
My essential oil journey began years ago, as my disabilities worsened and caused my entire world to change. I knew I had to positively change as much of everything possible surrounding my now bedridden world, so I began a long, detailed search for the best EO company for me. When I found Edens Garden, I knew I'd found my perfect company!
Over the years, my EO journey has brought with it multiple changes in favorites. Where I used to mainly focus on the Lavenders, I now ensure I always have Vetiver within reach and I absolutely love Tranquility! Edens Garden is still my perfect EO company! Thank you, EG!
We received a bottle of Good Night and Stress relief as part of a housewarming gift. At this time I was not familiar with EOs but diffused Good Night that night and both my husband and I slept better than we had in years! Then after using Stress Relief for the first time we were hooked for life! Now I have multiple wooden Essential oil boxes through our house full of only the best EOs on the planet (Yes that means Edens Garden)!
